Kansas State-Stanford, Colorado State-Colorado top cable sports TV ratings for Friday September 2, 2016

 

Per requests, in addition to including the most-watched Gunsmoke on TV Land, I’m testing out including the ten most-watched programs on cable for the day (which will sometimes include sports or sports-ish programming.)

Scheduling note: Due to the upcoming Labor Day holiday there will be Nielsen delays next week.  Friday’s table will be posted Tuesday; Saturday, Sunday and Monday tables will be posted Wednesday and Tuesday’s table will be posted on Thursday.

Cable Sports TV Ratings for Friday September 2, 2016:

This is sorted from most-watched to least-watched. Using your browser’s search tool (usually CTRL/CMD+F) might be the faster way to go if you’re looking for something specific.

Note to readers using mobile phones: on most phones the tables are easier to read/scroll through if you tilt your phone to landscape orientation.

All data ©Nielsen (data provided by a variety of TV network sources and not directly from Nielsen)

Note: viewership of around 100,000 or lower is technically what Nielsen refers to as a “scratch” i.e., not enough Nielsen panelists watched for Nielsen to validate it. There are around 40,000 homes in the Nielsen panel and a bit over 100,000 panelists, where 1 Nielsen panelist watching a whole telecast represents around 3,000 people. So something averaging a million viewers averaged around 370 people out of the ~100K panel — small, but still statistically significant. But when there’s a show with 30,000 viewers, that’s only around 10 Nielsen panelists…
